Measuring the sound of hearing

Measuring the sound of hearing

Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are acoustic signals generated in the cochlea as a by-product of the active nonlinear amplifier localized in the outer hair cells (OHCs), and recorded in the ear canal, as an evoked response to acoustic stimuli, which provide a sensitive diagnostic tool of the hearing function. Our project aims at measuring OAEs with a new technique, involving simultaneous measurements of acoustic pressure and velocity. The new technique allows one to calibrate the acoustic stimuli independently of the ear canal geometry and of the middle ear transmission
